Perhaps an artist’s greatest love letter to a city or town is in the form of a bold, colorful mural that pays homage to the community’s culture—and in Wisconsin’s case, there’s a lot of them. Here are some of the most Instagram-worthy murals to find and snap a pic of while in Wisconsin.
The Butterfly Effect
Let your love of art take you to new heights with this butterfly-inspired mural that’s located along the wall of Vincent Urban Walker & Associates—a Green Bay business. With a charming pastel color palette and butterfly wings that are perfect to pose in front of, this mural is totally worthy of an Instagram snap—and has a great message to go along with it.
Color Block: Montage of Murals
A visit to Color Block in Eau Claire is like a five-in-one deal—you get to see bold, bright and obviously stunning murals (all with different themes) in one conveniently located area. The funky art scenes from local artists aim to inspire creativity and “unique thinking.”
Black Cat Alley
This outdoor art gallery has a wide array of murals that anyone can enjoy or appreciate. The complex public art installation of murals was created back in 2015 through a collection of local artists and community members aiming to add a splash of artistic flavors to Milwaukee’s streets.
Dream Without Limits
This large-scale mural in Green Bay is not only beautiful, it also boasts an incredibly meaningful message too. The mural was actually erected as a collaborative effort between Curative Connections, ASPIRO, On Broadway and artist Beau Thomas, among others, with the hope to inspire people to dream big—particularly those who suffer from disabilities.
